Aladdin/Hamilton's James Monroe Iglehart to Write Spider-Man For Marvel Comics

James Monroe Iglehart won a Tony Award for his performance as the Genie in the original Broadway production of Aladdin. He also took on the role of Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson in the Broadway company of Hamilton in April 2017. You may have also seen him pop up in The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt as Coriolanus Burt.

Now, he is writing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics. There are lots of ways to break into comics, but being cast in Hamilton is clearly the latest.
